Huish's lawyer, Scott Daniels, filed a petition Tuesday asking Third District Court Presiding Judge Bryant Croft to set aside a ruling by Lt. Gov. David Monson that Huish cannot be listed on the ballot as a Democrat. Huish mailed to Monson a copy of a document, called a "declaration of candidacy," required by the Federal Election Commission. Monson received the document on April 26 and ruled it did not satisfy Utah law, which requires candidates to appear in person at the lieutenant goveror's office and pay a fee equal to 1 percent of a congressman's annual salary ($303). Monson said he attempted to locate Huish, but the candidate was out of town. Huish, the only Democrat running in Utah's new Third Congressional District, attempted to pay the fee the following day. But Monson's office said it couldn't accept he money. "It's our position that the document mailed to the lieutenant governor was sufficient to satisfy the law," said Daniels. However, the lawyer said the petition contains a backup claim in case the court refuses to overturn Monson's ruling. "Our second point is that Mr. Huish made a good faith effort to file and that as soon as he discovered he had misunderstood the requirements of the law he attempted to pay his fee in person. It's our contention that he should be allowed to file as a Democrat because of that good faith effort," said Daniels. But Huish is not taking any chances. Although the deadline for filing as a party candidate passed on April 26, the deadline for filing as an independent is May 10 and he intends to file as an independent. Daniels said the court action can't be resolved before the May 10 deadline, and having Huish file as an independent could damage his case. "But the risk of damaging the case is far outweighed by the risk of losing and not be listed on the ballot at all," he said. Utah Briefs Post to be retained SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - Voter approval of a change in the Utah Constitution allowing the lieutenant governor to run in tandem with the governor, was interpreted by a state committee Monday as a mandate to retain the post. Because of that mandate, the Committee on Executive Reorganization voted Monday against studying a proposal to abolish the office. The committee was acting on the request from Jack T. Higginbotham - chairman of the CER Executive Management Subcommittee who suggested most of the lieutenant governor's duties be transferred to other agencies and the office abolished. Father pleads guilty SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - A 25-year-old Salt Lake City father has pleaded guilty to a child abuse charge for shaking his two-month-old son so vigorously the boy suffered brain damage. Mark Breinholt, 2844 S. 11th East, pleaded guilty in Third District Court, and sentencing was scheduled for May 28. Salt Lake City police allege the boy was shaken on two occasions, and during one such episode on Oct. 31, police said the boy stopped breathing temporarily. The charges against Breinholt said the child's condition worsened the next day, and he was later diagnosed as having a condition called cortigal atrophy. LORRAINE- IS there enough water? SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - While the Department of Energy has examined the quality of water near a proposed high-level nuclear waste dumpsite in southern Utah, no one has asked whether there is enough water to support the facility. That was the thrust of a letter from Gov. Scott Matheson Monday to Energy Secretary James Edwards. In the letter, Matheson said the omission is another argument in favor of compiling a comprehensive environmental impact statement on building the facility at Gibson Dome on the fringe of Canyonlands National Park. Matheson said the DOE's water study doesn't consider the availability of water in the arid state, "where practically every drop of water is counted, (and) the the availability of a definite water source for a project should be the first thing considered." The Division of Water Rights said more water is requested from the Colorado River than is available and the Utah Department of Agriculture is opposed to diverting water used for agriculture.

Belgrano, upon which he served for four years during World War II when it was known as the USS Pheonix, "The Galloping Ghost on the Aussie Coast." UPI Testimony cancelled Nevada politicians filmed, recorded LAS VEGAS, Nev. ( UPI ) - Nevada politicians who encountered an athletic, pipe-smoking undercover agent posing as a multimillionaire medical group investor, sometimes were recorded and filmed during a sweeping federal probe into government corruption. Sources said an agent using the name Steve Reilly wheeled and dealed for casinos, fat farms, banks, health centers, mountain acreage and other property over a period of many months. As he circulated through Nevada's political back rooms, he was wired for sound the the FBI videotaped his meetings with some public officials, sources said. The same electronic eavesdropping tools were used in the Justice Department's Abscam probe, which rocked Congress when a half-dozen members were convicted of bribery and conspiracy. The Nevada FBI sting operation maintained offices in Las Vegas and Phoenix, Ariz., where $3 million was scattered between two banks to give credibility to the investment firm of Doctor's Fiduciary Trust, which Reilly represented. Sources said at least $1 million in the name of the trust was placed on interest at Nevada National Bank in Las Vegas, a bank headed by powerful State Sen. Floyd Lamb, D-Las Vegas. Another $2 million in interest-bearing cerificates was on deposit a a Phoenix-based bank. Lamb, senior member of the Nevada Legislature and head of the Senate Finance Committee, appeared to be a key figure in the investigation. He introduced Reilly to the politically powerful in city, county and state governments. Leaks to the news media exposed the undercover drama this week as the undercover operation neared its conclusion. Sources said the federal grand jury was expected to begin reviewing evidence within a couple of weeks. Sources indicated Nevada politicians were asked for political favors by Reilly who offered, in ex- Del Webb Corp. sells Sahara LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) - The financially troubled Sahara Hotel on the Las Vegas "strip" has been sold by Del E. Webb Corp for $50 million to the owner ol a rival gambling resort who also acquired an option to buy 22 nearby acres an 18-hole championship golf course, it was announced Tuesday. Robert Swanson, chairman, president and chief executive of Del E. Webb Corp., said the sale to Paul Lowden was to be completed by Aug. 2 subject to Nevada Gaming Commission approval. Lowden, president and owner of the Hacienda Hotel-casino, was granted an option to buy a 22-acre parking lot on Paradise Road east of the Sahara Hotel as well as the resort's 18-hole championship golf course. It has been rumored for many months that Lowden was negotiating to buy the resort The Del E. Webb Corp. reserved the right to offer the country club to other potential buyers during the option period which expires March 31, 1983. Lowden said he anticipated no immediate changes in the Sahara Hotel operation. The 932-room Sahara Hotel, which opened in 1952, has a 26,000 square foot casino and 48,000 square feet of convention facilities, five restaurants and six cocktail bars. Swanson said sale of the Las Vegas "strip" resort was part of the company's restructuring program which started a year ago. "Completion of this sale will further reduce Webb's 1981 anticipated debt with a peak of $279 million, in spite of the recessionary business climate," said Swanson. change, campaign contributions in an off-election year when the money would not have to be reported. One report said the FBI obtained electronic information showing Lamb accepted money for political favors and that strong evidence was obtained against Clark County Jack Petitti. Both men have denied any wrongdoing. County Commissioner Thalia Dondero said Tuesday she accepted $500 from the undercover operators, but later returned it. She said that to her knowledge the money was given without any strings being attached, but she gave it back because she didn't want any complications. SOLEDAD, Calif. (UPI) -Neither the state parole board nor the attorney for Sirhan Sirhan had any explanation for the abrupt cancellation today of key testimony on behalf of Sirhan by the president of the American-Arab Friendship Association. Dr. M.T. Mehdi, a longtime campaigner for Sir-han's release from prison, was not expected to show up today for the eighth day of a hearing to determine whether to cancel the 1984 parole date for the convicted assassin of Sen. Robert Kennedy. Neither officials of the California Board of Prison Terms nor Sirhan attorney Luke McKissack had any explanation for Mehdi's sudden cancellation of his promise to testify today in Sirhan's behalf. Mehdi notified the prison terms board Tuesday that he was not coming but gave no details. An article Mehdi wrote for the Irab-American magazine "Action," based on an interview with Sirhan in 1980, has been made a key issue in Sirhan's parole hearing. According to Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Larry Trapp, Mehdi quotes Sirhan as calling the late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat a "traitor to Islam, who deserves to be dealt with accordingly." m $ iky ' V v , , ll I k AY ' ji !';'.. .... . 13 om ioo S LORRAINE DOES TULIPS Sleekly elegant and glowing with style these seoswn silhouettes in White. finished with contrast piping and signed with a Tulip applique.
